Second hand in got dealt kings. Was able to raise and get callers. The flop brought down two 10s, I bet and got re raised twice. I flat called it and a king hits the turn. I bet get re raised, so I re raise it again. Two callers. On river I bet again get flat called.

Fifth hand I raised with king/8 off and ended up making 180 by hitting a straight.

Ninth hands gave me pocket 9s. I was able to hit top set and got re raised. I 3 bet it and get called. I bet turn and he folds.
Up to 37000.

just had jack 9 and flopped two pair. The other dude also flopped two pair with ace 9. We 4 bet the flop. I had position and just flat called the turn and river. I lost the min in the end.

First break 3605. Haven't been getting hands since the hot start. My table has no pros and no one has been eliminated. One guy is now under 1000.

I am pretty happy with my play. I had never played a limit holdem tournament before in my life. I played $2.50/$5 at a casino and I played it in horse tourneys three times. But today I sat down at a single table sat for it. So not bad so far. Trying not to do anything too stupid, but I am definately not a by the book limit player. I am rather aggressive. But it is six handed and I'd rather not let the blinds catch up enough to force a decision.

I'm also doing well in the daily double b.

3213 at the first break. I've lost a couple pots to some ridiculous plays, one hand a guy floated my turn bet with 9 high (i only had q9, he had 89) and caught an 8 on the river. He had no draw.

Flopped top set to get myself over 4500. The short stack folded the turn. I should have gained his last 360 there. He had committed nearly double that.

Hand too strong to r/f, too weak to r/c, too strong to open-fold since pushing is massively +EV, so, by process of elimination, we arrive at my favorite play
